Imagine yourself having achieved the outcome that you have set. Can you notice any conflicts when you are out there in the future?
Use your imagination.
Here is a really cool technique to absolutely embed your goals in your mind: find a quiet place and sit down. Make sure that your well-formed outcome is clear in your mind and that you have a specific time in the future when you know you want it. Bring a picture of it up. See what you see, hear what you hear and feel what you feel. Now make the picture really compelling. Change the visual elements to make the picture even better – the colour, the brightness, the focus and the movement. Ask yourself what you can hear and change the sounds to make the picture in your mind really compelling. Decide on what feelings you have when you get this compelling outcome and then turn them up to the maximum (like a radio dial).
Once you have made this picture really compelling, count to three and then clap your hands and seal this picture in your mind. You will be able to bring this picture up again very easily and that will make it easier to achieve your outcome.
Now what you need to do is practice, practice practice! Set compelling goals for the day, for the month, for the year. Have some fun and you will then be easily able to take action. You will notice if your goals are not compelling and what you need to do to make them compelling. You will have also spotted any conflicts with your purpose, identity, values and beliefs.
